Less Margaret Thatcher, more Golda Meir. That’s what Bill Clinton hoped Steven Spielberg could coax out of Hillary.
From The Daily Mail:
The Clintons were having drinks with friends when it was suggested that Hillary be coached on how to present herself during speeches, according to journalist Edward Klein, who wrote Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary.
She allegedly said: ‘I get $250,000 to give a speech, and these Hollywood jackasses are going to tell me how to do it!’
But Bill insisted and she reportedly agreed to the move to please him.
The former President is said to have told her: ‘You can use Charlotte [Chelsea Clinton’s daughter] to emphasize how you’re all about women and children. Now the challenge is to repackage you in 2016 as a strong but lovable older woman.’
He added that it was important for Hillary to come across more like former prime minister of Israel Golda Meir than the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
As for the idea, I’d say the Hollywood hotshot director would have better luck getting warmth out of one of those Jurassic Park dinosaurs, which come to think of it, both Hillary and Joe Biden remind me of.
As it turns out, the idea that Hillary Clinton is just one more thing that Barack Obama either lied about or was wrong about. Remember this?
